Each personality-driven property in the Design Hotels Collective offers a unique experience.

Yes. A Fora Advisor will let you know if your chosen hotel is running any special promotions.

Marriott is a major stakeholder in Design Hotels. However, the latter still remains a consortium of independent hotels. As such, you can earn Marriott points for some Design Hotels Collective reservations, but not all. 

Your Fora Advisor can tell you if your desired destination offers Marriott points.

Both programs offer hotel upgrades and perks at Design Hotels Collective properties, but the exact benefits vary by location. It’s worth noting that reservations made through Design Hotels Pro may be prioritized for room upgrades over Virtuoso bookings, should the hotel be partnered with both.

In any case, your Fora Advisor will make sure your reservation is booked through the program that best suits your preferences.

Booking with a Fora Advisor is exceptionally easy. All you need to do is find an advisor you like and share your preferences — they’ll handle all the heavy lifting.

Fora travelers can expect top-of-the-line perks at Design Hotels Collective properties regardless of whether the hotels participate in Design Hotels Pro. For most properties that don’t participate in the program, Fora Advisors can still score you VIP perks and status (your advisor will always make sure you get the best available rates and perks).
